Young@Part® and Younger@Part®

TRW’s adapted musicals for kids are available in two distinct product lines tailor-made for young actors: Young@Part® musicals run 60 minutes and are designed for performers aged 8 to 14 years old. Younger@Part® editions are designed for performers 6-11 years old and run 30 minutes. Ideally suited to the school and youth theatre producing environment and perfect for fully-staged productions, assemblies, or classroom shares, these author-approved versions are developed and thoroughly workshopped by distinguished theatre educators. Cast sizes are expandable, song keys are adjusted for developing voices, and scenes are edited for time and content—all while keeping the spirit of the original Broadway show intact. TRW’s Young@Part® and Younger@Part® musicals, from the man who created junior editions, are the most authentic and trusted young person adaptations available for production.

Big News: Young@Part® Now Comes With Choreographic Videos and Digital Backdrops!

TRW is thrilled to announce the inclusion of two vital production resources in our Young@Part® ShowBox: choreographic videos brought to you by The Original Production (TOP), and Digital Backdrops from Broadway Media Distribution (BMD). We consider these creative elements—choreography and scenic design—as crucial to the production value of a show. Both these products have revolutionized the ease of producing a musical in the school environment and receive overwhelming support and rave reviews from teachers. Your Digital Backdrops and Choreographic Videos are delivered digitally after you’ve booked your Young@Part® licence. We can’t wait to give you access to these incredible production tools so you can see firsthand what the excitement is about!

About the Products:

TOP Choreographic Videos have an artistic pedigree unlike any other choreographic resource and are customized for the abilities of young performers. Streamable to any device, TOP provides step-by-step instruction from Broadway choreographers, giving you and your cast the training to execute each number in the show. Whether you use the choreography as-is or adapt it for the unique needs of your cast, this thorough teaching tool–including a built-in slow-motion feature–is a framework for bringing memorable dance numbers to your show. TOP not only breaks down the dance sequences, but also examines the history and development of each style of movement in the show. Teachers consistently share with us how TOP has helped challenge and motivate their students, provide development for their choreographers, and bring a “wow factor” that thrills their audiences.

Young@Part® Digital Backdrops from BMD are created by professional designers to suit the needs of the school and youth productions. They’re the perfect resource for teachers or directors who want to introduce Broadway-quality scenic projections to their production. The Young@Part® Digital Backdrops include an instructional help guide along with the digital projections for iPad, PC or Mac platforms. BMD’s Young@Part® Digital Backdrops bring flexibility, high production value and an enhanced experience the audience won’t soon forget. Teachers tell us they love the ease of use, incredible tech support, and the way Digital Backdrops pair with set pieces to create a totally unique production look. As the first company to make projections commercially available to the performance art community, BMD continues to be the most innovative and customer-oriented company of its kind, proudly partnering with TRW to include this exciting new resource for all Young@Part® productions.
